8-o

Physical Graffiti is definitely up there, but I finally found a copy of In Through the Out Door and I haven't been able to turn it off so far. :-D Picking just one is tough, but if I could only choose one it would be Houses of the Holy probably. I think I posted something like this in the "Top 5" thread, but if I had to rate them I'd probably go:

Houses of the Holy -- The three opening tracks, The Ocean, Dancing Days, and Dyer Maker? 8-o
III -- I've just always loved the sound of it for some reason
II -- I don't know why, but I love this one too. I don't know a lot about music but to me the bass work -- and of course guitar -- are just incredible. 8-o
Physical Graffiti -- You pretty much nailed it. ;-D
In Through the Out Door -- South Bound Suarez, Fool in the Rain, and Hot Dog are the best threesome this side of HOTH, but Carouselambra and I'm Gonna Crawl aren't too shabby.
I -- As I've said before, very underrated and a spectacular first effort.
IV -- I know it's sacrilege, but oh well
Presence -- I didn't particularly care for it at first, but it's definitely growing on me. ;-D

I don't consider Coda one of their albums really, but it's not bad either.

I've also been getting into the live stuff a lot lately. I don't really care for live stuff generally (at all), but I got How the West was Won a couple weeks ago and it hasn't found it's way out of my stereo yet. :-D I've also been wanting to get the complete BBC recordings, but don't have the $$$ at the moment. O:-)

Guess that was a little more than you were looking for huh? :-D

SOTD, have you got No Quarter-Page and Plant Unledded?

BB, hard to say, but i might go with LZ 2. Not a bad song on it, plus it has The Lemon Song.

Nirvana made many lists. What a impact for only what, 3 albums?

Bleach, Incesticide, Nevermind, In Utero, Unplugged are all fantastic ;-D

When I was a kid and I first saw Lithium on Mtv I was blown away... it warped my fragile little mind 8-o

I hadn't until you mentioned it. I downloaded most of the album, and it's alright I guess. All of the old songs are probably in my top 25 favorite Zeppelin songs of all times, so hearing them redone like that was kinda weird. :-? It's good, just not good enough for me to buy it probably. What did you think of it?

I couldn't agree more. Nothing really stands out, but as a whole, it's right up there. ;-D

SOTD, i liked it. Kind of different, but good. Not as good as the original stuff, but good. Saw Page/Plant twice in concert, and they did some of the unledded stuff.

I've been listening to it a lot the past couple days and it's really growing on me. It's not as good as it was the first time, but then again, nothing could ever hope to be. ;-D
